Fuel prices continue their steady streak for the 24th day in a row on Tuesday, June 13. Prices of petrol and diesel have remained steady since the central government announced a cut in excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 per litre, and Rs 6 per litre on diesel earlier in May.
The cut translated into a reduction of Rs 9.5 a litre for petrol in Delhi and Rs 7 a litre for diesel. Petrol in Delhi now costs Rs 96.72 a litre as against Rs 105.41 a litre before, while diesel costs Rs 89.62 a litre as opposed to Rs 96.67 earlier.
In Mumbai, one litre of petrol costs Rs 111.35 and diesel Rs 97.28. In Chennai, petrol and diesel prices are Rs 102.63 and Rs 94.24 per litre, respectively. In Kolkata, petrol is Rs 106.03, and diesel is Rs 92.76 per litre.
The difference in the price of fuel in the states are due to the tax and the cost of transportation imposed by the central and state government.
